Do you have the world NA logo in a large file?
Have it as a SVG file, so can produce any size needed
- One caveat, perhaps, I do not think of this as anything other then
-- the disc graphic.
While working on a new business card, using VistaPrint, I had the option
to have a shirt with the NA logo printed on it. I did not choose it
from them, but that gave me the thought of having that logo printed on a
shirt locally. If I do such a thing, I will need a larger image than I
currently have from you.
Yeah I saw that. We have rather eschewed discussion on business cards a
time or two it seems and continuing with the thoughts from above it
seems that your use here is the exception that proves the rule. The
business card is specifically yours and your connection to the NA disc
project is quite certain. In this case using the Community DVD globe
graphic makes perfect sense and a url for either the libreoffice.org
site or (maybe both) one to the north-america.libreofficebox.org site.
I'll send a properly sized, hi dpi, graphic, as I think that is the
question from above, yes?
I thought that since I was going to need more business cards, and my
current ones promote both my list of free software and the Kiwanis
Aktion Club of Elmira NY <http://www.aktionclub-elmira.org/> , it made
sense that I add the LibreOffice info. I will be going around to many
local businesses/organizations/etc. and dropping off copies of the NA
DVD. My cat-mouse design is not one that works well for promoting
business ideas like LibreOffice.
One of the major "businesses" I am hoping to include LibreOffice in
their computer labs is the local School Districts. I may need to do a
specialty DVD for that purpose. I want to promote the features that
would be most useful for the teachers and students. Having an easy way
to spell check Spanish, French, German, etc., in an English menu
environment is one of the features that would be very useful. I do not
remember any way to do that when I was working as a substitute teacher
for one of the districts. Having the language teachers be able to spell
check their Spanish handout assignments is an important feature in my
option. Allowing the students to have that same ability in the computer
labs is also something I would think is needed. With LibreOffice
supporting all the languages taught in schools without incurring any
extra costs like MSO would require, is a great marketing point.
There are also "English as a second language" programs locally at the
library district and other organizations. Having a multi language
environment could be important in the computer labs accessible for those
students, or at lease letting the students know there is an office suite
that may be able to support their native language[s]. I heard last
night that in NYC there are over 800 languages spoken by the residents
of that city. Well, at least LibreOffice supports over 100 of them.
As for the Globe Logo on a shirt, hat, or other item, there is always a
need to do this type of passive promotion. Works well for other ideas
and businesses. I have a few of these types of shirts myself for local
businesses and non-profit organizations, including the Aktion Club's
"who" are using my logo design. I use VistaPrint for my business
cards, but I use http://www.queensboro.com/ as one of my sources for
embroidered and/or printed items. Both companies have prices that work
for my budget.
So having a NA logo [or LibreOffice logo] on a shirt, maybe a Polo
shirt, might be a nice marketing tool for promoting LibreOffice.
Wearing an embroidered polo shirt to a visit to a business,
organization, agency, school, etc., would make the person look more
"professional". I am not a suit and tie person, and I have only one
black suit, so having a polo style shirt with or without the suit jacket
would be "professional" looking to me. The question for that issue is;
should the logo be promoting the NA project or use the LibreOffice logo
to generically promote LibreOffice itself. Since I would be going in
with handout NA DVDs, I do not really know which would be the best one
The new card design shows the link to the LibreOffice-NA.US
<http://libreoffice-na.us> site. As soon as the
http://dvd.north-america.libreofficebox.org is ready for public use,
then the .....NA.US site will have a promoted link to this new site.
Once the ISO is ready, then there will be a direct link for that as
well. The idea for the testing portal will be modified to include
screen shots of the new DVD[s] and some more information about the NA
project. It may have info stating that there are other localized
projects, like Brazil's. I want to make sure people understand that the
NA project is dedicated to their needs.
So when you are able, would you please send me that file for the NA
Globe logo. SVG file is fine since I use Inkscape and GIMP.
